Overheard on Twitter

For laughs, fights, or genuinely useful information, let’s see what the most popular tweets pertaining to Ethereum for the past day were:

  • From cburniske:

    If you think #DeFi will have a smaller impact on $ETH than ICOs, you aren’t paying attention.The ICO boom flexed #Ethereum’s ability to perform 1 financial service: early-stage capital formation. #DeFi will flex Ethereum’s ability to perform *all* financial services.

  • From Crypto___Oracle:

    #DeFi is so early that no applications are safe from being overtaken by innovative projects. While I think certain infrastructure pieces are coming into place & will be harder to unseat, the dApp game is wide open with only $1B in DeFi on #Ethereum. It’s gonna be fun to witness.

  • From udiWertheimer:

    hey does anyone know what’s going on these days with Charles Hoskinson, Co-founder of Ethereum? Does he have a youtube or tiktok or something?I think he could be a great CEO for some company, I wonder why he didn’t go down that route

For a longer news piece related to ETH that’s been generating discussion, check out:

While a minimum stake of 32 ETH is needed to become a validator on Ethereum 2.0, staking pools and services make the participation possible for everyone….While some users have already opted to run their own validator node, others are still choosing among becoming an independent validator, joining a staking pool or using staking provider services….According to Consensys, at least 33% of Ethereum users plan to use third-party services and 20% of the respondents who previously revealed the intention to run their own validator nodes said they would consider using a staking service instead….According to him, Ethereum staking will be quite profitable for users who keep their funds on exchanges: “Exchanges like Bitfinex will charge a tiny fee to cover operation costs, but the large majority of rewards will go directly into the pockets of the users….Not all users want to go through the process of custodying their own assets and learning how to stake properly.” Changpeng Zhao, also known as CZ, the CEO of Binance crypto exchnage told Cointelegraph that users who actively stake via Binance will be able to earn higher interest rates than those who simply hold cryptocurrency in their accounts: “Binance will stake a fractional reserve of the Ethereum held by our users, as we still require some funds to be liquid for users to withdraw at any time, while automatically distributing proportionately the rewards to our users.” Another convenience of centralized platforms and custodial services is that they undertake the conversion of the user’s ETH to ETH2….However, in order to join the pool, users will need to have a minimum of 16 ETH — half as much of the minimum amount needed to run an individual validator node, but a lot more than what crypto exchanges would require.
